and shooting investigation, just go to foxnews.com online on whatever device you use for the very latest information on this story. >> heather: you can believe this 100 days left in the race for the white house. it can't get any tighter. a new poll showing president obama and governor romney are all tied up with 46% each. these numbers especially significant looking ahead to november. in nine of the past ten elections, the candidate leading the gallup poll to hundred days out has won the presidency. what about this. it's all tied up. john is a columnist and thanks for joining us. all tied, 46% down to the finish who crosses first and wins november 6th and how? >> obviously we have a lot of game changing events. we have three presidential events. each candidate is going to have a speech laying out the future. the basics of this campaign have been the same for a long time. president obama is the incumbent. everybody knows him. everybody has an opinion on him. he has not crossed 50% of the vote in two key questions in over two years. one, do you believe he deserves reelection and two do you
would not use the word conditionality, but i think the discussion with pakistan after they took some steps to close the ground lines of communication for supplies and so forth has worked our way back towards a more cooperative relationship. i think the u.s. in this administration has been clear about the areas of cooperation that we need to see to be able to continue to move forward with the assistance and support. starting first and foremost with counter-terrorism and things related to the safety of our troops in afghanistan. >> moving on to russia and our relations with russia. governor romney seems very upset with president obama's reset policy toward russia. the governor has described russia as the no. 1 global flow of the united states. first of all, what do you think of the governor's criticism? >> i think it is unfair and it misses a couple of the tremendous benefits we have gotten from the recent policy. from the beginning, president obama has been clear that we want to have a partner relationship with russia. where we have differences, we will continue to negotiate and press
case scenario for all of us in the region is when you get full-out civil war, there is no coming back. if it breaks down, if civil order breaks down to the point of no return, then it will take years to fix syria. and i have a feeling that we're seeing the signs of that over the past three weeks. the only people that can bring us back from that brink is obviously the president and the regime. and i believe this is the last chance that they have. >> my exclusive interview with king abdullah will air during our next hour during our 5:00 p.m. eastern hour here in "the situation room." you're going to want to hear what he has to say about syria a lot more detail. also, we spoke about mitt romney and barack obama in the interview. he's got some serious thoughts about these two individuals. >>> let's get to the presidential race right now. in today's republican triple play in ohio, not only is mitt romney campaigning there, so are two men getting mentioned, lots of mentions in fact, as possible running mates. the louisiana governor, bobby jindal, and the former florida governor, jeb bush. c
labott is joining us live with the very latest. bulgarians are of course investigating. i'm sure the israelis are as well. first of all, what are the bulgarians saying? >> reporter: well, wolf, forensic investigators on the scene. it's all very preliminary at this point, but they're saying that this was caused by a bus bomb already placed inside the bus. that's really all they know, but they're not ruling anything out. they say it's possibly a terrorist attack. obviously the israelis saying they're sure of it. but bulgarians not ruling anything in, not ruling anything out at this point, wolf. >> didn't take very long for the prime minister of israel, benjamin netanyahu to directly blame iran for this attack. >> reporter: that's right. a short time ago prime minister netanyahu, wolf, put out a statement saying all signs are leading to iran, his defense minister just spoke to reporters a short time ago. let's take a listen to what he said. >> this is clearly a terrorist attack initiated by hezbollah, hamas, jihad or any other group under the terror of iran or other radical muslim g
to help troops ready to turn back outside aggression. peter doocy joins us live with details. hello, peter. >> hi, shannon. it was four months ago that kofi anaan laid out the six point peace plan as part of his duty as the special u.n. envoy and the first part of that plan called for a cease-fire but that did not catch on and neither did the rest of the plan so now, anaan says so far, the peace process has failed telling a french newspaper that "significant efforts have been made to try to resolve this situation peacefully. obviously, we have not succeeded and perhaps there's no guarantee that we will succeed. anaan just arrived moments ago in damascus in syria to try to save his peace plan but here in washington, the former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. john bolton told us this morning it's going to be a struggle because two of the main superpowers in the region, russia and china have nothing to gain from a peace in syria. >> i think russia sees the syrian regime as critical of what it remains in its position in the middle east. those factors aren't going to change. if russia could replac
will not tolerate health care fraud. and in every instance where we uncover it, we will use all of our available tools to help -- to hold those responsible to account. before i turn over the podium to our next speaker, i want to read knowledge our colleagues and partners at a part of health and human services. -- the department of health and human services. the federal bureau of investigation, the federal drug control unit, and of our federal and state partners who have made valuable contributions to this effort. i would also like to thank karman ortiz, the ditch attorney for the state of massachusetts, who -- the district attorney for the state of massachusetts, who has done an enormous amount to make this effort possible in a longstanding commitment to eradicating health care fraud. i also want to thank john walsh, the district attorney of kalla rudder, and his office, for their significant -- of colorado, and his office, for their significant contributions to this effort. and finally, the civil efforts in advance in this investigation and other important ones like it. it is now my pleasure to
. [laughter] that is one. i used to congress on your corner. hear you say, i'm going to do this. it is the most intimate form of government. they did not hear your message about the telephone. [laughter] let me say this. we are having -- this is a pet peeve so thank you. this discussion about all that matters is tax rate is ridiculous. i cut upper head tax rates by 50% and by the time my term is out, we will eliminate it. tax breaks matter. -- tax rates matter. but any business person will also tell you the quality of a workforce matters. can they get goods and services efficiently? is government transparent? this year, we had 147 business places on the books. we had more than l.a., phoenix, and philadelphia combined. we massively consolidated them down to 43. i do not like you focusing on city hall. i want you focusing on your customer. my favorite example of this consolidation was if you buy a dog, they need a license. if he so the caller, you need another license. if you want to offer the service of watching the dog, you need another license. i was just looking for a kid to b
's disappointing overall and even more troubling for african-americans. plus, a u.s. veteran who lost both legs in iraq now embroiled in a rather nasty house race against an incumbent who first suggested she's not a true war hero. tammy duckworth is here in "the situation room" to respond. >>> also, a millionaire's apparent suicide just seconds after he's convicted of arson. what may have caused this shocking end to a life seemingly spinning out of control? >>> and great white shark spottings heightened. fears along the cape cod area. our own brian todd is on a boat with experts trying to track them down. i'm wolf blitzer, you're in "the situation room." >>> right now a disappointing jobs report kicks off day two of president obama's bus tour into overdrive and arms his opponent, mitt romney, with new political ammunition to use against him. look at this. unemployment is stuck at 8.2%. and only 80,000 jobs added in june. the numbers are even worse when you look at minorities. we're covering all sides of this dramatic political story. our own dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by
such a wonderful job i think of giving us good information. researching those issues which are critical to the american people. and the important to the american people in making decisions on where they want to go. so neara, congratulations to you on your leadership as well. give my best to john poddesta who is out there in the netsdzer world doing something that we know is wonderful. i know tom is here my former colleague who is working with you. and your vice president who does such a wonderful job and such a good friend. good morning. good afternoon i guess i should say. as he prepared to take office president kennedy spoke to a nation troubled by anxiety over america's leadership in the world and uncertainty over whether future americans will inherit a strong and secure commay. he offered not -- economy. he offered not soothing words but a rousing appeal and to action. he spoke to his generation of americans and urged them not to shrink. to advance. today i would suggest we confront a similar anxiety but much greater global competition. it is i think therefore essential for us to se
overdrive and arms his opponent, mitt romney, with new political ammunition to use against him. look at this. unemployment is stuck at 8.2%. and only 80,000 jobs added in june. the numbers are even worse when you look at minorities. we're covering all sides of this dramatic political story. our own dan lothian and dana bash, they are both standing by live. but first cnn's poppy harlow breaks down the numbers. >> hi there, wolf. i think the headline for this jobs report is disappointing. only 80,000 jobs created in the month of june. unemployment stays at 8.2%. we need to be creating somewhere between 300,000 and 400,000 jobs a month pretty consistently to bring that rate down. issues here 12.7 million americans still unemployed in this country. 5.4 million of them have been out of work for six months or longer. the longer you're out of work, the longer it takes you to find a job. that is a problem. also very key here. 2.5 million people are not counted in this unemployment rate at all. they can work, but they have stopped looking for work. so they're not counted in the unemploy
and everybody, the president, the secretary, everybody agrees that would be very devastating for u.s. national security and they want to avoid at all costs. >> thank you. that is helpful. rich, governor romney has said many, many times that he would not like to cut the defense budget, but at to the same time be inconsistent with lower taxes. within the framework of the problems that the country has to date with respect to the national deficit, et cetera, i don't know anybody who says you can't raise defense spending, cut taxes and accomplish anything with respect to the national debt. so how do you do that, sir? >> i should introduce you to more people. >> look, i heard the same thing in 1979 and in 1980. on the economy was crippled with double-digit inflation. >> you think is the same as in today? >> no, it's worse, but it can be done with the government's been clear about if he thinks we have to rebuild our navy. and he thinks obviously with the philosophical difference with president obama and governor reagan on the economy -- governor romney and president obama on the economy, it is one th
and that often kills them. to put a little close on this and a chance for us to converse, what is fascinating is the degree of duality in the great executive we studied. for example, is it 20 mile marching or defining moment in their capacity to do both? 20 mile marches with discipline and superb performance in a defining luck event moments that are out of their control. why did they do so much better? in the book, we noticed that over time, great executives will recall people had the genius of "and"as opposed to the tyranny of "or." it is humility and will. it is confront the brutal facts and having faith. it is productive and paranoid. when we stand back and look at a truly great enterprise, we see a huge duality under any great enterprise. that is what we call, preserved because for and stimulate progress - the core and stimulate progress. no great company exists if it does not have a core or stimulates progress. they are willing to change their practices, their strategies, there structures without compromising core values. they understand the difference between their core values and their

[captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] from government was there in the wee hours of the morning when we were doing our regular jobs at the same time working to start our business. small businesses operate in a world of bottom lines washington knows very little about. unlike washington, they don't have the luxury to deficit spend, print more money or profess as, quote, spending cuts, lower than anticipated growth. when the president claimed the american system allowed the askess to thrive, he made a dangerous -- allowed the success to thrive, he made a dangerous error. it does not permit them to drive. that language suggests government is a benefactor possessing the authority to give or take the blessings of open commerce as it sees fit. no, government does not allow you to thrive. government, when it operates in its constitutional capacity, does not object -- obstruct your thriving. ask
and that they can basically get weapons and money into syria from that... from the turkish area. so for us it made sense to get a sense of hue who the rebels are to spend time in the region they control instead of trying to cower and hide and go with them undercover from place to place to be in this swath of towns and villages that they control. rough where you have they are relatively safe. free from government assault on a regular basis? >> at this time. if you were to try to look at the map and say "where exactly do the rebels control? everyday it changes a bit, it morphs and changes. on the edges of the area they control the government might take a town back. there was one town when we were there that switched hands between the government and the rebels four times. why? because the government realizes that this border area is important to the rebels. they realize it is a buffer zone and they are trying to regain control but obviously government's army is stretched and its priorities are elsewhere: namely damascus and aleppo. >> woodruff: tell us about the rebels you met. you talked to a number
. the bank says to us, who is going to -- what customer of ours in west texas is going to wade through 100 or even 20 pages? host: this is from one of our viewers. dodd-frank is typical of what happens when the private sector misbehaves. guest: that is true. regulation is reactive. it is like you are fighting the last war. whitneys' to happen is set of incentives so financial institutions and other entities have been sentenced to be responsive to customers rather than to bureaucrats that they know they can charm. host: you can send us a, on our twitter page, join the conversation. you can also email's. good morning come independent line. caller: i think he explained it good. this is relative to the corruption between wall street and washington. this has been all over the internet about things happening, nothing being done about it. you have all of these corruption scenarios going on. congress says, we did not see it. they do not see it until the taxpayers have to pay for it. host: thank you for the call. tony says, is it true dodd-frank has generated a fourth of 13,000 pages of regulation?
. thank you for reporting for us. >>> the u.s. has given afghanistan a gift only a few other countries have, ally status. secretary of state hillary clinton made the announcement during an unannounced visit to kabul. the ally status gives afghanistan access to u.s. defense resources and training, ahead of the 2014 u.s. troop withdrawal. clinton says the designation is aimed at keeping afghanistan secure for the long term. >> our strategic partnership agreement is not aimed at any other country. our goal is to work with the region and the international community to strengthen afghanistan's institutions so that the transition is successful and the afghan people themselves can take responsibility and the future of afghanistan will be safer and more secure. >> mrs. clinton now heads to a donor meeting in tokyo to gather financial support for afghanistan. >>> now to syria, where the violence is spreading beyond the border. two rocket propelled grenades fired from syria slammed into a lebanese border town. two syrian refugees were killed and two others wounded. violence continues across the
not keeping the burden on either one of you. for a lot of us, we're trying to figure out how can we be accountable. we do not want to blame somebody else. that doesn't cut it to our employers. >> we have to stop pointing fingers. these false debates do not move anything for. i met in the state, i will not name it, with a number of superintendents. i asked the employers, how many of the high-school graduates are ready to come and your place of work? they said, less than 50%. and the room got quiet. they had never -- these were all good hearted people in the same community. they had never talked. somehow, whenever you can do, whenever we can do to facilitate both skidding past educators running business, they do not get it. so much mutual self-interest, but they had never had a conversation. that is what we have to figure out. >> we're in the middle of doing that, region by region. bringing the largest employers with their educators. we are guilty of this as governors, but you talk about having -- we want to be as tight as we can on the standards and as loose on how we get there. i kn
that is where you are no longer going to use it. now you could still use the argument and you hear that argument more often on the republican side which is just sort of let them all slaughter each other, and without a great consideration of the strategic calculations in the middle east because it's sort of like the middle east, just go away. so, i think that is also a pretty powerful again, i would emphasize -- emphasize if you had to write now put your finger on something that would change the dynamic here, that has to be turkey. turkey. i think, i think professor -- professor, president obama's out of this one unless you see something happen in turkey or if you just see the slaughter accelerate at such a rate that we are more or less obliged to do something. it's possible that if the fsa could get ahold of aleppo and declared a free city to set up an opposition government in aleppo and figure out some way how to stop the armor, the artillery and the planes from driving them out at least for a while, that you could rapidly change the dynamic. and it would certainly be, it would certainly be an
pays for your health care. there has been a study showing how much that dilution costs us. it concluded that the income we lose because our employers taking part of our paid to purchase our health insurance, part of the premium we pay in addition to that, the taxes we pay and our out of pocket costs, the average american family pays $25,000 per year for the illusion that we get free health care. >> essentially, there's a reason for insurance, to protect against catastrophic costs. if you have a heart attack or cancer, you cannot just pay the doctor or the surgery. it is just like homeowners insurance or life insurance or any other insurance. when you prepare routine costs of front, you are paying the insurance company to do it. >> i'm a retired army physician. from your point of view and for your adversaries on the left, when all the dust settles, whatever and wins, what will happen to the military medical care system which includes the hospitals run by the uniformed services as well as the va system? >> i am glad you brought this up. it is little appreciated that one of the fastest-gr
, sent each of us a letter with a "time" magazine cover by joel kind entitled "how to die." this article is jarring to many because it's an issue that most would rather not confront. as a result, there's a great deal of unnecessary pain, confusion and suffering. it masks one of the most important issues in health care which, despite the manufactured controversy over death panels, is a rare sweet spot in the health care debate. it can improve the quality of life, in some cases length of life, and most important, we can help people understand their circumstances and get the care that they want. if this happens, the cost of health care will go down even as satisfaction and quality goes up. for most americans, the protocols followed by almost every hopped and practitioner will be to give the maximum amount of the most aggressive care in end of life situation, especially if patients have the money or insurance, they will be hooked up in their final stages of life to be resuscitated, cracking their ribs, massaging hearts. there will be tubes inserted, chemicals will be pumped, defibrillators w
administrations suggests an answer. he has said regulatory uncertainty is invented by republicans to use current economic problems to support an ajeopardya year in and year out. it is political way. look at what this bill would do. it seems like frankenstein and it is very frightening. the underlying bill would block all efforts to protect public health, safety and the environment until the unemployment rate falls below the figure of 6% and it would impose canses on the government and would put impedements to consent decrees and settlements. nuclear power, the safety of the american public would be put at serious risk. my amendment to attempt to make this bill slightly less of a horror show. the dangers of nuclear power are well known. one accident could doom millions of people. because of the disasters that could happen, regulations to prevent from meltdowns in advance are important. the underlying bill would make it harder to adopt rules and policies. hampering the ability of the n.r.c. to put in safety measures could be devastating. my amendment would free the n.r.c. from the burdens of this
this morning and the court appearance coming up 30 minutes away. good for joining us everyone and see you back here tomorrow. "happening now" starts right now. jon: a fox news alert on the movie massacre as the suspect, homes homes makes his first court appearance. i'm jon scott live from aurora, colorado. jenna: good morning, everybody, i'm jenna lee in new york. he accused of killing 12 people and wounding 58 others during a shooting rampage during a screening of the new "batman" movie. we expect to have a hearing as he appears before a judge at the bought hour. jon: the suspect's hair was dyed red and told officers he was the joker the as we learn details about this deadly plot and his sick goataway plan and the twists that helped save lives. police combed through the once booby-trapped apartment where he found batman memorabilia. he is lawyered up and cops say he is refusing to cooperate with them. alicia acuna is live outside the courthouse in centennial, colorado. alicia? >> reporter: hi, jon, the district attorney here, carol chambers, did talk to reporters inside the c
hicks. she was her. she talked to us with her friend laurie, she was inside theater eight, next door to the one where the shooting that took place. mckayla, was shot through the theater wall. it is still in her chin. doctors say it is safer for her right now. her mother said she is trying to get into the courtroom. >> i want to go into the courthouse to see as much as i can. if i can get in. if i can just see this guy, for how much hurt he has done to this whole state, this whole nation. i mean, i don't think he's hurting yet. and i think he needs to. >> reporter: and again, jon, things get going about 25 minutes from now. back to you. jon: alicia acuna at the courthouse. thank you. [audio difficulties] jenna: we're having a little technical difficulty with our camera in aurora. we'll be back to jon in a moment. let's get back to what he was talking about there. a community heartbroken and shattered by what is described as unthinkable event. thousands of people coming together in aurora last night to honor and remember all the victims and their famlys. the ceremony marked by tears, p
will cut to news of a tragedy that reminds us of all the ways that we are united as one american family. by now, many of you know or have heard that a few miles outside of denver in a town called aurora, at least 12 people were killed when a gunman opened fired in a movie theater. dozens more are being treated for injuries at a local hospital. some of the victims are being treated at eight children's hospital. we are still gathering all of the facts about what happened in iraq. what we know is that police have one suspect in custody and the federal government stands ready to do what ever is necessary to bring war is irresponsible for this crime to justice. ring who ever is responsible for this crime to justice. i had the chance to speak with the mayor of colorado to express on behalf of myself, michelle, and the entire american family of who heartbroken we are. even as we learned how this happened and who is responsible, we may never understand what les anyone to terrorize their fellow human beings like this. such violence, such evil is senseless. it is beyond reason. while we may never
" begins right now. >>> and good morning to you. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for being with us today. we begin this hour with the western wildfires, growing in size and claiming more lives. so far, 1.9 million acres have burned. that's equivalent to an incredible 3,000 square miles. to give you an idea of just how huge that is, it's roughly the size of delaware and rhode island combined. and then there's the human toll. two crew members are confirmed dead in the weekend crash of an air tanker in south dakota. cnn affiliates say two other firefighters aboard that c-130 were also killed. one family member spoke to wbtv just before the doomed flight. >> it's very exciting. i mean, you know, adrenalin is flowing. we're ready to go. hopefully when we get there, we'll be ready to go right when we get there. if they need us to start dropping today, we can start helping out. watching the news and seeing everything that's going on out there, and so we have just been waiting for the call. as soon as we got it, we're ready to go. we're all experienced so we have been through it before. bu
're ready to go. hopefully when we get there, we'll be ready to go right when we get there. if they need us to start dropping today, we can start helping out. watching the news and seeing everything that's going on out there, and so we have just been waiting for the call. as soon as we got it, we're ready to go. we're all experienced so we have been through it before. but the biggest thing is we are thinking if we can do our job and do it right, we'll be able to stop it, and you know, hopefully wherever we put the retardant down is where the flames will stop and they won't go any further. if it works out right, it will burn itself out. >> that was paul miceal, sadly dead this morning. he was aboard that c-130 that crashed that. crash does underscore concerns about the ageing fleet of those c-130s. today the air force has grounded all of them. pentagon correspondent chris lawrence is joining us now to tell us more. good morning, chris. >> carol, this is taking a major weapon out of the inventory, so to speak, when it comes to fighting these wildfires. these c-130s were patrolling over four s

so much. that does it for us on this sunday. i'm eric shawn. >> jamie: and i'm jamie colby. shannon bream up next. have a great day. >> the sand is running out of the hourglass and we want to make clear to the syrian regime that they need to be willing to end the violence and start the serious business of a political transition. >> shannon: secretary of state hillary clinton giving syria a wake-up call warning that time is running out for a failing peace plan while the syrian military makes a show of force asking other nations to stay away. going green or going broke? critics want it to head back to part saying the $26 a gallon biofuel is a waste of precious taxpayer dollars. proponents say it's vital to the military future. states rights vs. civil rights as texas gets ready to argue its voter i.d. law is legal and the justice department is overstepping its bounds. all that and jack's snack packs. meet a little guy on a very big mission to give the troops a little taste of home. i'm shannon bream.

committee are ready to work on this important legislation as well. and they refuse to work with us to help the economy or to prevent a looming tax hike on nearly a million small businesses at the end of the year. instead, they prefer to waste valuable time on a vote they have argued for many years shouldn't take place this close to a presidential election. now that there is a democrat in the white house, they refuse to follow past practice of postponing the consideration of circuit court nominations this late in a presidential election year so the american people can decide who they want to make these important appointments. this practice is known as the leahy-thurmond rule. it's a custom they vigorously defended when there was a republican in the white house. so let's take a look at recent history. in 2004, the unemployment rate was only 5.4%. on our circuit courts, however, back in 2004, there were nine declared judicial emergencies. now, that didn't matter to our democratic colleagues. the senate stopped, stopped circuit court nominations in june of that year, even though we had nine ju
